This is a fantastic way to see the island. We went on a 1 hour ride down to the shore which was sheltered from the wind where we saw the lava fields, seals and the surtsey island in the distance. We then headed up hill where there was a view of everything! Eldfell, helgafell and the mainland. Asa provided lots... More

We only went for the hour ride as we were on Heimaey for a long day trip from the mainland. I emailed the night before to arrange. It was just myself and my husband who went on the ride with Asa and her husband. It was a very windy day but they chose a good route and Asa talked about... More

I love riding in Iceland and have ridden several places on the mainland, but this was by far the best experience I have ever had. We didn't have any idea of places to ride when we arrived on the island, so we stopped in the tourist center and the lady there called Ása and put her on the phone with... More

This is the place to go if you want to see the beautiful nature of the Westmannyear from top of a icelandic horse together with great company. Asa and her family are very nice people, and riding with them is truly amazing.

I had never ridden a horse before and Lyngfell Stables was a great choice for my first experience! I was lucky with the weather and it was sunny and calm so it was quite a large group I went riding with. They put me on a horse that follows the group at the back so I wouldn't have to do... More

We spontaneously decided to go to Heimaey and I searched for a stable as we still had riding left on our wishlist. I found Lyngfell and then checked Tripadvisor and we were not at all disappointed. I contacted Ása late Monday evening and 15 minutes later she had replied to all my questions (age limit, could we ride even though... More

I had a one hour ride along the black beach, lava rocks, and mountainside. It was simply spectacular and our hosts were full of knowledge. We saw puffins on the cliffs, a perfect sunset, and 5,000 year old lava formations. I had the chance to try the Icelandic 5th gait and to canter with my horse. It was pure bliss.... More
